Scholarship Luncheon

“Pathways to Success” Award Ceremony

Every year, the New Haven Schools Foundation holds a celebration luncheon event honoring the students who will receive scholarships from community organizations and individuals. In the 2019 school year, a record-breaking $155,000 in scholarships were awarded, and our generous sponsors will make 2020 spectacular, as well.

2020 Scholarship Luncheon

Date: May 22, 2020 (Subject to status of COVID-19 situation.)
Time: Doors open at 11:00 AM for photos at the selfie station. Luncheon 11:30 AM to 1:30 PM.
Place: Paradise Palace Ballroom, 4100 Peralta Blvd., Fremont, CA 94536

Scholarships will be awarded at the Pathways to Success luncheon. Sponsors will be seated with their student recipients. Each recipient and one parent/guardian will be our honored guests and provided with complimentary admission. 


The Art and Cheryl Kuhlmann Award will be given to an exemplary scholarship sponsor. In 2020, the award will be presented to the Kitayama Family, who have provided scholarships to New Haven students for over 30 years..

Our Keynote Speaker is Connie Wun, PhD., a graduate of the James Logan High School Class of XXXX. Dr. Wun is a renowned speaker and educator whose work focuses race, gender, equity, and power.

We always encourage students and sponsors to arrive early to take photos at the Selfie Station. Professional event photographers will be on hand, as well, and will capture as many scholarship presentation moments as possible.

Scholarship recipients will be excused early from school by requesting a pass from their House office.


Tickets are $75 per person. If you buy tickets for a group, please email us with a list of names of the people at your table.

Note to Scholarship Sponsors:

For each scholarship sponsor, NHSF provides a complimentary ticket for the first student and a parent/guardian. Sponsors who offer more than one award are responsible for part of the cost for additional students and their guests, at the discounted, partially-subsidized price of $25 each. (Purchase two student/guest tickets for each additional scholarship recipient.)

Please help! This year, our costs for each student and parent have increased to $40. We do not want to raise prices, as we want as many people as possible to be able to attend. If you can help offset this increase with an additional donation, we would greatly appreciate it.
